    Advice to Management

    People are human and when speak with patients, patients want someone who they can speak with and relate with who understands them. Not scripted or automated response. Patients want someone they can relax and speak with. Not stiff as a broad reading from a script. You want absolute perfection. It does not exist. People should be allowed to make a few mistakes. Especially when relating to patients. People are human, not stiff corporate script management.

    You have a job, you can hold on to. Friendly people to work with. They try to make working hear fun.

    not much room for advancement in the company. Its a family company so you get overlooked for better position because they hire their family into the salaried positions

    Try to open salaried positions to people who are qualified. Their are a log of people with degrees who can't get into better positions due to favoritism for family members., Makes this a place to avoid if you looking for a career

    Timelines were insane at times. SGA was out of control in the last years I was there. Trying to do too much too soon when marketplace was not ready for it
